Come Grow With Us
September 22, 2020 marks 76 years of continuous, uninterrupted, around-the-clock ministry to vulnerable children and families from this ministry first known as National Children’s Home of the Assemblies of God and later as Hillcrest Children’s Home. That is 657,432 hours of nonstop ministry!
As you will see and read within, that first mission has grown into a broad continuum of ministries today known as COMPACT. COMPACT is a compound word representing compassionate action. COMPACT is passionately committed to redeeming vulnerable children and families, including some of today’s most vulnerable. We are committed to grow as far as the Holy Spirit leads and provides to meet the need.
Since 1944, over 9,000 children and youth have received the Christ-centered redeeming love of this ministry, many for years on end. More than 3,000 children have been adopted. Each has a name. Each is precious to God. Many have their names written in the Lambs Book of Life. (Rev. 21:27)
Every act of compassionate action unto the Lord for one of these is not an end in itself. Each story grows. Some transcending from generation to generation. Good seed in good soil can grow a hundred-fold. (Mt. 13:8) It is true of God’s Word, the sincerest of gifts and the people of this ministry. (John 4:34-38) One sows, another waters and God brings the increase! (1 Cor. 3:6)
The next decade is pivotal. I invite you to believe and partner with us to the glory of God!
